Algebraic Operads: An Algorithmic Companion presents a systematic treatment of Grobner bases in several contexts. The book builds up to the theory of Grobner bases for operads due to the second author and Khoroshkin as well as various applications of the corresponding diamond lemmas in algebra. The authors present a variety of topics including: non

About the Author

Murray R. Bremner, PhD,is a professor at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada. He attended that university as an undergraduate, and received an M. Comp. Sc. degree at Concordia University in Montreal. He obtained a doctorate in mathematics at Yale University with a thesis entitled On Tensor Products of Modules over the Virasoro Algebra. Prior to returning to Saskatchewan, he held shorter positions at MSRI in Berkeley and at the University of Toronto. Dr. Bremner authored the book Lattice Basis Reduction: An Introduction to the LLL Algorithm and Its Applications and is a co-translator with M. V. Kotchetov of Selected Works of A. I. Shirshov in English Translation. His primary research interests are algebraic operads, nonassociative algebra, representation theory, and computer algebra.

Vladimir Dotsenko, PhD,is an assistant professor in pure mathematics at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland. He studied at the Mathematical High School 57 in Moscow, Independent University of Moscow, and Moscow State University. His PhD thesis is titled Analogues of Orlik-Solomon Algebras and Related Operads. Dr. Dotsenko also held shorter positions at Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies and the University of Luxembourg. His collaboration with Murray started in February 2013 in CIMAT (Guanajuato, Mexico), where they both lectured in the research school "Associative and Nonassociative Algebras and Dialgebras: Theory and Algorithms." His primary research interests are algebraic operads, homotopical algebra, combinatorics, and representation theory.
